Ok, even so I labeled everything as best as I could (with pinterest tips no doubt) we still had one hell of a time unpacking all of our things. And yes… we still have too much. Honestly, I feel like I could live without pretty much everything we have and I find myself wondering… WHY do I still have this thing?
Recently, I picked up a copy of Marie Kondo’s book, “The life-changing magic of tidying up” and it is a total game changer for me. I know that if I work through this book, and follow her strategy, I will be much closer to where we want to be and to live more comfortably as a family. Unpacking all of this junk just makes me shake my head.
As a mom, I feel awful about this. I don’t want my son to grow up thinking that things are the most important aspect of his life. We do daily affirmations every day when he wakes up, those are the kind of “things” I want for him.
I’ve already put together a bunch of donation bags. Brien found a charity out here that collects donations for veterans and their families. This is awesome, and they actually come to you for pick up. So cool. I will definitely be ringing them again after the first pick up.
Seeing all of these boxes in our beautiful (yet small) apartment makes me dread moving again… can’t we just stay in our humble little corner of the world forever?
